How To Prepare for a Renovation



Create or gather detailed plans for your renovation. Consider layout changes, structural modifications, and new fixtures. Don't forget to include door placements and hardware in your plans. Before coming in for a consultation collect any existing plans, e.g. these can be obtained from your council if there was a previous renovation or bring in any plans if you've already consulted with a designer or architect. If you don't have access to these, just put some ideas and drawings down on paper and take some photo's of the space.
